Saab BioPower Sedan Gets GM Dual Mode Hybrid Drive
The latest development of Saab's innovative combination of BioPower and hybrid technology is presented at the British International Motor Show (July 20 – 30) in London: The Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept.
This unique concept, showcased in a Saab 9-3 Convertible, is the first vehicle to combine a fossil-free bioethanol fuel (E100) capability with electric-only propulsion by utilizing the advanced two-mode hybrid system which General Motors Corp. is co-developing with DaimlerChrysler and BMW Group. The Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept is capable of zero fossil fuel CO2emissions while also enhancing performance and reducing energy consumption.
Packing 260 hp (191 kW) from the 2.0-liter turbo BioPower engine and a total of 148 kW from its three electric motors, the Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept provides significantly greater torque than its gasoline-only equivalent.
